Vote For Bilal!

The finalists for this year’s Westfield Local Hero program include our very own Storyteller-in-Chief, Bilal Hafda!


As a poet, and leader in his local community, Bilal has dedicated countless hours to working with young people from marginalised backgrounds. Through leading empowering workshops and building practical skills, Bilal’s efforts are helping shape a generation of confident and creative young people.
